Stamp Review Crew: Crazy about You

SRC-Crazy-About-You-bannerCrazy about stamping, crazy about blog hops — Crazy about You!  And, I’m happy you’ve arrived at Heartfelt Inkspiration for this latest Stamp Review Crew hop.  Did you see Holly’s projects already at Rubber Redneck?  Excellent!

This is a go-to set for all types of sentiments (there are **30** single-word or phrase stamps!).  However, I chose to use the pointy flower image for the f0cus of my two cards.  In both cases, I used the kissing technique with one of the stamps from I Think You’re Great, inking the patterned stamp, pressing the un-inked flower stamp against it, then stamping on the card stock.  This gives lots of pattern for sunflower look, accompanied by a sentiment from the host-only set Best Thoughts.

Debra Burgin The best is yet to comeI began with the same flower for my second card, but added some layers.  First I reversed the kissing technique (inking up the flower and pressing it against the un-inked pattern stamp) and cut out a small flower. Then I topped it with a scalloped circle punched out of the card above and a matching vellum one.  And the pearl?  Colored with a metallic Sharpie.  The actual card is simply stamped with the leaves image, then slipped into a Mini Treat Bag envelope made from Stampin’ Up!’s Glassine Sheets.  I love this translucence.

Debra Burgin From all of usThanks for checking out my creations!  Now head over to The Stamping Blok and see what Rochelle has for you!

    Your flower reminds me a bit of a sunflower – especially with the burlap ribbon. Love the look. Your reverse kissing technique was a clever touch. I have those glassine envelopes, but wasn’t sure what to do with them. Will have to try this.
